Here is where a thread like this becomes REALLY useful.  Squished, if you have a B/C unit whose only problem is that the drive doesn't read discs (game discs?  or just movie discs?)...Sony will still repair those units as far as I know, but the repair is $150 and the job of boxing-n-shipping. 

 

Cascadian says it perfectly right.

The replacement drives for those CECHA and CECHE consoles can be ordered on internet marketplaces for $40 - $75.  Unscrewing the lid off your console (nine screws) and replacing the drive (2 plug-in connectors) is a 20 minute breeze of a job.  No soldering, no electrical wires to mess with, no circuitboards to lift out the way.  

 

Don't send your unit to Sony when it's something so small you can do it yourself before breakfast.  (Sony already has enough other stuff to work on Smiley Happy)

Incidentally, KUDOS and grats for the gamer who hosted some fine sessions on Star Wars Battlefront II last Friday night!!

I hadn’t really planned to play or host on Friday, so I only stayed for an hour, but it was cool fighting to protect the last Bespin command post against Arc troopers. 

 

If you’re reading this VODE, thanks and spread the word: Long Live Battlefront online!!!
